I've had this conversation with a friend before....   I'm no computer 
engineer, but I could see no reason why it wouldn't work....   The thing 
is, it would confuse the hell out of Joe Blo PeeCee user....   (ya mean 
i just plug all this stuff into the hub?  can't someone hack into my 
mouse then and put a virus in it and spy on the porno i look at and tell 
my wife about it?)
